‘CATS’ musical returning to Broadway this summer
- February 3, 2016
Once Broadway’s longest-running show, CATS will return to Broadway in July 2016. The smash hit Andrew Lloyd Webber musical concluded its last run in 2000 but now it’s set to be revived at the Neil Simon Theatre under its original director Trevor Nunn.
Hamilton choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler has joined the creative team and will reportedly base his movement on the original steps created by Gillian Lynne.
The storyline of CATS is based on “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats”, a collection of poems penned by T.S. Eliot. Its mixed bag of characters comes to life beside lavish sets and with catchy pop scores.
